HP Sauce Campaign: Keep It In Britain!
HP Sauce is British icon.
First marketed in 1903, it was the recipe of one FG Garton of Nottingham. Garton sold the recipe in order to pay off an outstanding debt to the company from which he bought his malt vinegar to make it. The HP stands for Houses of Parliament, as depicted on the label, when Garton he heard that it was being stocked in one of the House of Commons restaurants.
Although generally seen gracing the relatively humble company of chips or bacon butties, HP Sauce has an impressively exotic ingredients list that includes dates and tamarind extract.
We (and I'm sure the rest of Britain) would like to see it continue to be made in Britain, so we are urging Heinz to see the light and not close the HP Sauce factory.
So why not contact Heinz and/or the British Government to let them know how you feel?
November Update: We have started an e-petition to send to 10 Downing Street - Contact Heinz US Head Office
